  Atlanta, Georgia, as a part of The Arts Exchange, a collective effort of local

  artists to promote various art forms from around the world. The founder, <a target="_self" href="parvati.html">

               Melissa Sproul-Singh</a>, had returned from a

  six-year residential study in India and was excited about sharing her experience

  of the classical music and dance of India with other Americans. She wanted to

  involve the community of Indians living in the USA and other Americans who were interested

  in the arts of India. </span></font></font>

            <font size="2">The organization's purpose was to have Indian teachers of dance and

  music come to teach in the United States. Ganesh Academy has worked closely with

            <a target="_blank" href="http://surendranathjenaodissi.com">

            Pratibha Sanskritik Sansthan</a> in New Delhi, India. We are currently offering the 2010

            tour of dance performances and workshops by Pratibha Jena Singh, the extraordinarily talented daughter

             of the late Guru Surendra Nath Jena. <br>

  <br>

  Ganesh Academy has provided programs over the years in Atlanta,

GA.  We added programs in 2000 in Knoxville, TN, and in 2002 in Milledgeville, Athens, and Macon GA.

These programs have built cultural bridges between America and India, and the progress of the academy grows stronger each year.</font></font></span></p>
